Orienteering race 1:36:05 [3] 3.7 km (25:58 / km)

Not my worst race, but far from my best. The result was worse than last week's middle, in more technical terrain. My fears turned out to be largely unfounded; I was able to recognize features (with hesitation).

In a reversal from last weekend, the last 6 controls (all very short legs) were the worst. I coughed up 8 places in the standings. I was leaving trails early, getting stuck in the undergrowth (encountering one raspberry vine which drew blood), missing knolls, etc. I missed the trail option on 14->15, and again on 15->16.

The powerline corridor, mapped mostly as open yellow, proved to be anything but open. It cost me significant time both times I had to cross it.
